The Animals Prophecy
Although Enoch says it was a dream, this is a long and detailed prophecy, and it provides an interesting outline of the contents of the Old Testament, perhaps the original planned contents, plus many other details. While most of the prophecy is now history, and is recognizable as Bible stories, the end stretches off into the distant future. There are no names or dates; different animals represent different nations or nationalities. The following chapter, the Ten Weeks, covers the same story but from a different viewpoint.
We start at 85.3 with Adam and Eve, and Cain and Abel. Cain and his descendants are at 85.5.
At 85.8 Seth is born to Eve. Next (85.9 - 10) there is Enoch's family line, described in Genesis chapter 5.
The star at 86.1 is the first of the Watchers/Angels to appear. Watchers are represented in this story by stars rather than as animals. This first one is the fall of Samael (Satan) perhaps, maybe a senior member of the Watchers, we dont seem to have any reliable information on this story available to us now in our era. Apparently one of the stories that didn't make it into the Bible. The information provided here (86.2) is that Samael caused the people to be dissatisfied, they moved around, and changed their wives, and moaned.
The period covered by Enoch's book starts at 86.3 and continues through to 88.3. Here the runaway Angels are described as fallen stars who threw themselves down to join with that first one. This is also described at the start of chapter 6 in Genesis - Sons of God (Godlings in Hebrew) desired the daughters of men. These unions gave rise to "giants" (Nephilim - meaning to fall, as in swoop down). The prophecy says nothing about giants but mentions the offspring as elephants, camels, and asses - the founding of new nation states perhaps.
At 87.2 - 3 Enoch describes how beings from heaven, and he actually says they looked like white men, raised him to their tower, somewhere high above the earth. Enoch specifically mentions there are 7 of them, I think these could be the Seven Sages who are mentioned in some other ancient texts about the flood era.
88.2 seems to describe some serious warfare using advanced weapons, it says the whole earth shook.. It is possible that this war, and the events surrounding it, are described in the Mahabharata, an ancient Hindu text where the gods fight a war with many advanced weapons, nuclear missiles included, judging from the detailed descriptions in the text.
The story of Noah starts at 89.1 and continues through to 89.9.
The flood starts at 89.2.
Noah's three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, give rise to all the animals (nations) at 89.10.
The white bull at the end of 89.10 is Abraham.
At 89.11 there is Abrahams sons, Ishmael the wild ass, and Isaac the white bull.
Isaac has a wild boar, Esau, and a white sheep that is Jacob. At the end of 89.12 Jacob has twelve sons the patriarchs of the 12 tribes.
At 89.13 Joseph is sold to the Ishmaelites or Midianites (asses) and then to the Egyptians (wolves), see also Genesis 37.25 and 39.1.
Genesis 42 onwards is described at 89.14 the time in Egypt.
At 89.15, we get to events covered in the book of Exodus.
There is a long section describing the life of Moses, at 89.16 38; which is probably the reason why Moses believed that Enoch walked with God (as stated in Genesis 5.22).
89.18 introduces Aaron and the parting of the Red Sea is described by the text at 89.24 - 25.
Crossing the river Jordan, 89.39, is chapter 3 in the book of Joshua. Also in this verse the Judges get a brief mention.
The ram at 89.41 is probably Samuel, followed by Saul, 89.42, (chapter 22 of 1Samuel in the Bible), and these are followed by David at 89.45.
The dogs are the Philistines.
The time of Solomon is at 89.48 and the building of the Temple at 89.50 (the tower).
The period after Solomon starts at 89.51 with the deaths of prophets.
The one saved, 89.52, is Elijah.
At 89.56, "he left that house of theirs" probably refers to the time of King Manasseh when the Levites took the Ark of the Covenant and left Israel (around 670 BC). They also took Enoch's book and eventually settled in Ethiopia.
The lions in this part are the Assyrians.
There is a change of scene at 89.59, which probably coincides with the religious reforms under Josiah (620 BC) see chapter 34 of 2Chronicles.
Then there are the 70 shepherds; these are various religious leaders in Jerusalem since that time.
At 89.66 there is the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem by the Babylonians (587 BC).
The return after the exile (538 BC) is at 89.72. The three who return are Ezra, Haggai, and Zechariah, who all have books in the Bible.
The second temple period, is at 89.73, this is described in Malachi (450 - 400 BC) his book is the last book of the Old Testament.
The eagles first appear in the story at 90.2 they are the Romans.
Fifty-eight of the shepherds have served their time by verse 90.5.
The small lambs with open eyes (90.6) could be the Essenes.
At 90.8 there is the death of John the Baptist - by the ravens.
Jesus is the "sheep with the big horn" at 90.9 - 16. Interestingly, it does not say specifically that he is killed, only that his ministry is stopped by a conspiracy.
At 90.17, the final twelve shepherds have their own book. This must be the Christian era.
The prophecy then goes into the future.
At 90.18, God strikes the Earth in anger. This is the "second end" in the Ten Weeks prophecy.
There are no recognizable events after this, the story goes far off into the future and only time will reveal its meaning.
