"Yet I destroyed the Amorites before them, though they were tall as the cedars and strong as the oaks. I destroyed their fruit above and their roots below.” (Amos 2:9 NIV)

The Book of Enoch 

As it is, this book didn't make it within the inspired Bible that I hang my faith on.

I'm sure there are reasons for this - concepts beyond my knowledge and understanding.

But I believe in Enoch, and I believe that I should emulate him. God is the center of my world, and I revolve and evolve around Him. I breathe, move, and live in Him. Like Enoch, I want to walk with God. I want to keep in step with the Spirit.

Enoch didn't draw attention to himself. He pointed to God. He would strongly disapprove that I look to him and his supposedly writings, and neglect my God and His Word.

If I want to be in league with Enoch, then I'll only look to God, not to man.

Whether Enoch wrote a book or not is irrelevant. What's important is I quote the Bible. I don't need to refer to his book to emphasize the Book of books.

The book of Enoch didn't write anything that would make God any less than He is right now. Nor should we interpret his book to anything that makes God uncaring and reticent. He is still and always will be good, all the time.

The Case of the Nephilim Giants

And yes, I've read about the giants and the paternity of angels, but I don't hang my faith on these - it's not Bible.

So what if the giants are real and the Nephilims are here. Nothing has changed. My God is still Lord of all. He forgives me of my sins, raises me to my highest potential, keeps me with His grace, heals me of any sickness and contagion out there, provides for my needs, and delivers me from the evil one.

I choose to be like Joshua and Caleb, who would only bring good reports to God's people for the glory and honor of His name. (Numbers 14:6-9) So what if there are giants in my promised land. The Lord is fighting for me.

Like Joshua and Caleb, I focus on God and His wonderful plans. Giants are nothing, not even worth mentioning.

So what if Nephilims are then and now, will it make me a better Christian? My Father wants an affectionate relationship with Him. I respect Him out of awe and wonder. I don't fear Him and submit to Him in order to be protected from giants. Protection and deliverance are parts of the package. I just need to remain in His arms.

So what if superhuman giants can be as tall as cedar and oak trees, will this help me witness to more people about Christ's saving grace?

The Gospel is just fine. Let's just stick to the Bible.

And for the unexplained, here are some commandments to follow:

1) Avoid controversies - these are unprofitable and useless (Titus 3:9)

2) Command certain people not to devote themselves to myths - such things promote controversial speculations, and it does not advance the work of God. (1 Timothy 1:3-4)

3) Insist on teaching the Word of God - those who teach other than the Word have an unhealthy desire for controversies that result in strife and quarrels. (1 Timothy 6:3-4)

4) Don't have anything to do with foolish arguments and controversies - because they start fights. (2 Timothy 2:23)

The Book of Enoch is just another book that I have read and that’s it – it’s a done reading. But the Bible is different. The Word of God is the only book that I would read repeatedly. I even make reading plans to finish it in one year. And I would read it morning and night.

Let’s stick with the Bible.

Just like Joshua and Caleb, I want to follow God wholeheartedly and receive the promise. (Numbers 32:12)
