The prophecy of weeks - the 10 weeks prophecy from the Book of Enoch.

10 weeks

If you're unsure about the authenticity of Enoch, I, too, was uncertain when I first learned of it, but I found the following:

First of all, Enoch is mentioned in Genesis, Luke, and Hebrews; and the book of Enoch was quoted by both Jude and Peter.

It is not included in the Bible we have today, but there's a good reason for that.  It was completely unknown prior to the KJV Bible and all of the pre-KJV translations and collections of scripture, so there could be no way for it to have been included in the Bible we have today. They did not have a copy of it to include in the compilation of the Bible, even though it is quoted and mentioned many times, so it was impossible to include it at that time. However, when they created the Canon of Scriptures, one of the criteria they used for inclusion in the canon was; Is it mentioned and/or quoted elsewhere in scripture? Enoch meets this criteria.

Enoch, like Elijah, was taken to heaven by God without having to die in this life:  Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. - and - Heb 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

The book of Enoch was first discovered in Africa (Ethiopia) in the mid 1700's and then also found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Enoch was the great grandfather of Noah.  He gave his writings to Methuselah (the son of Enoch and grandfather of Noah), and Noah to preserve them "so they can be delivered to the generations of the world".  Is it a book we should study and consider as the word of God just like the other major prophets? I can't answer that question for you, but I have read it, have found that many places confirm and expand on what we have in the Bible, and find the prophecies fascinating, such as the prophecy of the flood and how it gives us a greater understanding of the world prior to the flood. And, the "10 weeks" prophecy perfectly confirms the timelines of the rest of the Bible, especially prophecy, where each "week" is an "era" or period of time (looks like they are about 600-800 years each).

Since Enoch is mentioned several times in the Bible, was a man of God, and the book of Enoch was quoted by Jude and Peter, I believe it was originally authentic and inspired by the Spirit like the rest of the Bible.

If you have not seen my notes on the book of Enoch, take a look at the prophecy of weeks from Enoch. It's amazing!

This is so incredibly interesting! This is just another place where God gave us a timeline that shows us without a doubt that we are in the last days right now! We don't have much time left! If you're not ready, it's time to get ready now, before it's too late!

This prophecy goes through the entire history of the world and all the way to the end of the Millennial reign of Christ.

Each week is 700 years for a total of 7000 years. We're at 6000 years right now, which is the point in time where God says He will return, take those that love Him to be with Him, and destroy the wicked and begin a 1000 year reign where He will rule with a rod of iron.

The prophecy of weeks - the 10 weeks prophecy

There are some different theories about this prophecy.  Some think it is 1000 years for each "week" and that the first week is the creation week, and the last week is into eternity.  That one does not fit all of the timelines and stated events well at all.  It follows much more accurately that it is about 700 years for each "week".  Each week might not be exactly 700 years, but each week is an era or period of time in the history of the world from creation through the millenial reign. As I always say, I'm not stating any of this as fact, just that my studies lead me to believe this to be true. I leave it to you to decide for yourself.

My take on this is, just like Daniels 70 weeks are really weeks of years, IE: 7 years for each week, it makes much more sense that a "week" here in Enoch also represents a multiple of 7, IE: 7 centuries for each week. 1000 years, or other speculated timeframes that are being taught out there don't make sense!

After that: Many weeks without number for ever! No more sin! Eternity with God!

As you can see, this prophecy matches the timelines of the Bible and prophetic timelines perfectly! From Adam and Enoch, to the flood, Abraham, Moses and the Law, the Kings, Jesus' first and second comings, and the prophecies of the Last Day including Judgement Day and the New Heavens and earth. It confirms many things we learn from studying the Bible and adds to our knowledge!

And we're right in the middle of the 9th Week! Woot! The last days are upon us and the Lord is coming soon!

Come, Lord Jesus!
