Many in modern Christianity are astounded at what is being made more and more available in regards to these non-conical texts. Many others are very grateful, because of the availability of these texts and the study of them, and are encouraged by those who study them to read this literature of antiquity and early church history.
You, yourself, may be astounded to hear of the fact that Satan and his “fallen angels” are very much active today as they were then in keeping said information out of the hands of believers.
It is pretty obvious (when you do some serious looking) that fallen angels have attempted to censor Biblical literature over the course of Christian history, in fact wouldn’t you expect it? Justin Martyr suggested that fallen angels had infiltrated the highest offices of the church and changed the interpretation and the Books of the Bible. They desired to remove any evidence of fallen angelic activity prior to and after the flood. This is why any book that made reference to the Book of Enoch was immediately censored. The Book of Jude and the Book of 2nd Peter where almost left out due to their specific quotes from the Book of Enoch.
We all remember the scripture that says, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels (Hebrews 13: 1).” Most people interpret this to mean “good” angels and I agree, however, the Bible is replete with as much evidence of fallen angelic intervention as faithful angelic influence.
The two best examples of censorship that I can give you are: The King James Apocrypha and the Book of Jasher.
The Apocrypha remained in the Authorized King James version until it was taken out of the protestant Bible by the Puritans. King James appropriated his Apocrypha from William Tyndale whom also included the Apocrypha in his original translation. You can still order the King James Bible and the William Tyndale Bible with the Apocrypha in it. All you need to do is ask.
The Book of Jasher (for example) is one of those embarrassing examples of a book that is quoted in the Bible as verifying and setting Biblical standards but is not found in the Canon.
“Is it not written in the Book of Jasher?”
2 Samuel 1:18.
“Behold, it is written in the Book of Jasher.”
The Book of Jubilees is an excellent book of antiquity; without this book, you will never located the Garden of Eden nor understood what Moses did during his absent years from Egypt. Did you know that the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch have always been canon since the time of Messiah in the Ethiopian Bible?
Enoch I and Enoch II are must reading for the student of church history. These are fantastic books. Here is where you can discover the Grigori, Watchers, Nephilim, Gibborim, Phoenixes, Chalkidri, and the ten classes of good and bad angels.
Enoch I (Coptic) is incomplete without reading Enoch II (Slavic). This is must reading for any theologian or for that matter the exorcist.
You can read the Bible, attended Bible study, study under some of the greatest Bible teachers in this country and will be unable to find out who the giants were and where they came. You can go to Bible College, receive a Masters of Christian Education and a Doctorate of Ministry in Christian Education and never hear a discerning word about demons, fallen angels, the order of angels, exorcism or deliverance.
After reading the Canonized Bible, You will only know three names of angels (Michael, Gabriel, and Rafael), that we entertain them unaware, and that we shouldn’t worship them.
After reading the church books of antiquity, you can know more about angels.
Note on the Apocrypha:
The term Apocrypha is used to designate a collection of ancient Jewish writings which were written between 250 B.C.E. and the early Christian centuries. The Apocryphal books have come to be regarded as inspired Scriptures in the theology of the Roman Catholic Church. They were declared to be authoritative scripture at the Council of Trent 1546.
Both the William Tyndale Bible and the Authorized King James Bible included the Apocrypha in their original publications.
In addition to the Apocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha is ascribed to Jewish and Christian.
Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, sectarian literature (Josephus) scrolls from the Cumran Caves (Dead Seas Scrolls) and a wide variety of other ancient writings provide helpful understanding of the Bible.
Personally, I do not understand why Protestants follow the canonization of the Bible that was set down by the Roman Catholic curia. Isn’t that what led to all the apostacy and idolatry that the Reformation was supposed to address. Speaking as an ex-Roman Catholic, I have tried to find my Hebrew roots in the Body of our Messiah and in the church that existed prior to the Council of Nicea (345 A.D.) and the Reformation. The last Chapter of the Book of Revelation says not to add to ‘this book’; well then, stop adding and subtracting to it.
There has been a deliberate dumbing down of the Body of Messiah, eliminating the Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, and sectarian literature is only the tip of the iceberg.
You need to read it for yourself. Get a Septuagint, get a Kings James with the Apocrypha, get yourself a good Interlineal Hebrew/Greek Bible, get yourself a good King James Study Bible, Bible Dictionary, Strongs Concordance, and other study helps and find out for yourself that I am correct. The Bible is under attack from within and without by fallen angelic design.
