For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood!* (Part I: The Warning)

{*Eph. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (KJV)

No truer words have ever been spoken than by the Apostle Paul writing to the Ephesians warning them about the forces that they and also we, will have to combat in life. As many of you know I am not a particularly talented writer but I sometimes manage to get my point across. This time it will be extremely challenging to do so because I had a lifetime learning things the wrong way, so expressing them in the proper mindset will be a challenge.

Please Note: I will primarily use 4 versions of the scriptures, first: ISR (Institute for Scripture Research, 2009 edition; second: The Dead Sea Scroll Bible (DSSB), 1999 edition; third: The Septuagint (SPT), 1851 edition. Why? Because the Dead Sea Scroll Bible and the Septuagint are the oldest Bibles in existence and have suffered much less damage to intent from constant retranslation and as a result give us a much clearer picture of the scripture’s intent. And finally, I will also quote from the King James Version (KJV) only because it is the most common version available. When I quote from another version of the scripture I will identify that version so as not to mislead anyone.

Second Note: I will also quote from one book of pseudepigrapha; Book of Enoch or also known as 1 Enoch. I will explain why later. I want to comment on books of pseudoepigrapha. Just because something is called by the ominous sounding name of pseudoepigrapha does not mean that the book or books is(are) not valuable for serious study, as I hope to show later. At least 6 epistles attributed to Paul may be or are pseudoepigraphs. They are; Ephesians, Colossians, Second Thessalonians, First and Second Timothy and Titus. If you are like me, even if these were 100% proven to be pseudoepigrapha I would not stop using and studing these books because I have proven them accurate in my studies and my life.

What is the “New” Point of View that Changes the balance of the Scripture?

The point of view is simply Supernatural. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Well, it can be with the explanation in the proper context. Let’s take a look at the book of Revelation first to try and find the context: Rev. 1:16 (KJV) And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. Rev. 1:20 (KJV) Rev 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Here we clearly see Yeshua (Jesus) equate the stars to angels. This was a very common line of thought for a Hebrew. And, in Num 24:17 even the reference to Yeshua identifies Him as a Star, “I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.”(KJV) Even Yeshua refers to Himself as a star in Revelation: Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. In Job 38:7 we see an odd reference to morning stars singing: Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Let’s look back to Revelation: Rev 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. We know that this is not a literal interpretation but rather referring to the day that Satan is cast out of heaven and the angels that will follow him in his rebellion.

Back to the book of 1 Enoch.

1 Enoch has too many references to angels as stars that all I can suggest is that if you want further proof get a copy, including the free .pdf version, and read it yourself. It IS worthy of serious study and I hope to show you why later in this article.

So what is the big deal about angels?

Glad you asked. Let’s get down to the meat and potatoes of this article. Let’s turn to Genesis 6:1-4 (ISR):  And it came to be, when men began to increase on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,
Gen 6:2 that the sons of Elohim saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
Gen 6:3 And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.

For those of you who have read my three part series on Why I Was Wrong About The Destiny Of America you will recognize and hopefully understand verse three and we will skip it. For those of you who have not read the series please do so later.

What is being described in Gen. 6:2 is what the half brother of our Messiah, Jude, spoke of in his epistle. Jud 1:6 And the messengers who did not keep their own principality, but left their own dwelling, He has kept in everlasting shackles under darkness for the judgment of the great day. (ISR) ((This one verse proves that Jude was aware of and quoted from 1 Enoch))

There are two very important things to note in this one verse of scripture in this very tiny book of scripture; first, the angels left their own dwelling (heaven); second, the use of the word principality. These are two very important concepts missed by modern readers. Let’s refer back to Eph. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. So angels left heaven, came to earth and took human women for wives and produced hybrid children called nephilim.

Some versions translate nephilim as giants and this is incorrect. The word originates from the Hebrew word nephal – to fall, and nephilim would literally mean the fallen ones. The word for giants is rephayim and is also found in scripture, sometimes referring to a certain portion of the nephilim. In the book of 1 Enoch this group of angels who left heaven and dwelt on Earth and took wives from among the human women are referred to as Watchers.

Devils and Demons.

Just a quick note to clarify a huge misunderstanding about the nature of the spiritual world. There is a difference between devils and demons. Devils are fallen angels and demons are the spirits of the dead nephilim who were prohibited from entering heaven because they were not a creation of the Father but rather a genetic mutation caused by sexual intercourse between an angel and a human woman. These were called abominations in YHVH’s eyes and He refused to give them solace until the final judgment.

Also, I want to point out another misunderstanding between the Watchers and their offspring the nephilim. The Watchers were banished because they gave mankind forbidden knowledge (technology/science/sexual promiscuity/metallurgy/astrology/astronomy/divination/hybridization(gene modification)/etc.) There was NO mention of the nephilim giving mankind any such technology or knowledge. This will be very important later.

I know that by now you have several questions. One, I am sure, is what happened to the Watchers/fallen angels/devils? They were placed under the hills and valleys of the earth until their judgement 70 generations later. (1 Enoch 10:12) . Okay here comes the math. Enoch was the seventh from Adam (Jude 1:14). Remember, Enoch was given the responsibility of asking YHVH for mercy for the nephilim and also the Watchers. YHVH condemned to judgement in 70 generations (after Enoch). So let’s do the math and see where we end up.

Wait a cotten picking minute, this is a huge event. Why is the B’rit Hadasha (New Testament) silent on this taking place? It’s not. Here it is: 1Pe 3:18 (KJV) For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
1Pe 3:19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
1Pe 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

Yeshua, went and preached to the spirits in prison. The same spirits that were disobedient, rebelled, conceived children with human women and were locked away under the hills and valleys of the earth until 70 generations later and were judged. What was their judgment? To be locked away in the abyss until their final judgment in the abyss of fire. (1 Enoch 10:12-13)

Verse 20 above is our key verse in this article, waited in the days of Noah. Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. And, Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. Do you see it? The things that took place in the days of Noah WILL take place in the days preceding the second coming of the Messiah. Now, let’s look at another great prophecy about the same thing.

As I said in my previous articles involving Daniel it is the most misunderstood book of prophecy in the Bible in my view. Look at a portion of this prophecy, given to King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2: Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

First, modern day theologians and “Christian” scholars relate the ten toes to a reunited Europe. NO! Read the prophecy carefully because the feet and toes are destroyed first and then the rest of the image collapses and breaks into pieces.In scripture, what does clay represent? Man. What does iron represent? Angels. Why? Because the angel Azazel taught metallurgy. Iron was created to kill and that is why YHVH would not allow His altars or temples to be made of stone cut by iron. Altars were to be made of uncut stone and not brick. Why not brick? Because man baked brick to build the tower of Babel so they could challenge YHVH.(Gen 11:1-4)

What Does All of This Have To Do With The 21st Century?

Very good question. First, you must know where you are in the cycle of time used by YHVH and to understand that, once again, I recommend that you go to my 3-part series on Why I Was Wrong About The Destiny of America. However, if you are a Bible believer and are aware of the signs of the times, I am sure that you have an inkling that we are near the last days, or as it is stated about, “as in the days of Noah”.

This first article will give you my warning and the next article(s) will build on what I have shown here to give background and to reinforce these concepts. Believe me, there is too much to handle in one article and probably just one book.

This is not a prophecy nor have I had a vision.

In the coming days and months there will be much in the news about monumental discoveries, in space, planets, stars, and on the Earth, Antarctica, Crimea, Bosnia, China and South America, among others.

Headlines will read: New Pyramids Discovered. New technology has been discovered buried beneath the ice of Antartica. Unknown pyramids in XYXYX (where ever) contain new clues to our origins. Our Creators Came From the Stars (The popular movie Prometheus) Ancient Alien Technology will solve mankinds problems. And just one more; Ancient Aliens will return to solve Mankinds Greatest Problems, okay I fibbed, one more, Alien Messiah comes to unite mankind.

The only ancient aliens that will be coming will be more fallen angels to deceive mankind once again. What? Did I forget to mention that there have been and will be more fallen angels? Yes, that is right. Angels, just like man have a free will. Angels can and will be seduced by Hasatan and will figure into his scheme to destroy man and try to unseat YHVH.

In the next article I will give more background into the angels and also YHVH’s divine council.

((I was going to use the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible and also the Septuagint but Von and I went on the road and are still on the road and I left both of those at home. I will use them in the next article. Sorry))

Num 6:22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 6:23 “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ĕl. Say to them:
Num 6:24 “יהוה bless you and guard you;
Num 6:25 יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
Num 6:26 יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.”
Num 6:27 “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ĕl, and I Myself shall bless them.”

Yah Bless.

  1. Likewise, CC.
    Very thought provoking! Thank you. Bring on the next article(s)!
    Prayers and blessings for good health for you and Von.

  2. Fascinating! I feel sorry for those that don’t see or feel an urgency to study His Word! We need to know how to be prepared, as well as learn what to watch for and guard ourselves against! This looks like a study in and of itself!

  3. Shalom and todah to you all,
    I will try to work quickly but there are several things I have committed myself to and must also get them done. As it appears at this time I will write a total of 3 if not 4 articles on this very important issue. Hasatan will do all that he can to deceive mankind and he will use all of his resources and we must be prepared.
    Shalom,
    CC
