Enoch’s Yearly Circuit of the Sun

Overview

In about the year 4012 BC, Noah’s grandfather Enoch documented the yearly circuit of the sun in Book of Enoch. Enoch taught the laws of the sun to his son Methuselah and Methuselah taught these laws to his son Noah.  Noah I’m sure cherished the books that his grandfather Enoch wrote and took them on the ark with him for safe keeping.  From there the knowledge was passed down to all of Noah’s descendants.  Our bibles reflect that king David was aware of the circuit of the sun in this verse:  

In the sun he has set his tabernacle; and he comes forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber: he will exult as a giant to run his course. His going forth is from the extremity of heaven, and his circuit to the other end of heaven: and no one shall be hidden from his heat.” Psa 19:5-6 

There are several places in our bibles called ‘Gilgal or Galgal’ which means ‘circle of stones’.  There are ancient circle of stone on earth that do track the circuit of the sun as Enoch described in the Book of Enoch.

And the people came up out of the Jordan, the tenth day of the first month, and camped in Galgal, over against the east side of the city of Jericho. And the twelve stones which they had taken out of the channel of the Jordan, Josue pitched in Galgal, And said to the children of Israel: When your children shall ask their fathers, to morrow, and shall say to them: What mean these stones? You shall teach them and say: Israel passed over this Jordan through the dry channel.” DR Joshua 4:19-22

Enoch’s Yearly Circuit of the Sun

Enoch documented the circuit of the sun from our perspective here on earth; meaning our view of what the sun appears to be doing.  For example, today we say the sun rises in the east and sets in the west; however the sun did not move instead the earth’s rotation causes this effect.  Enoch documented the sun’s movement as seen from the Northern Hemisphere.

Each gate or portal contains a window for viewing two different constellations at the start of each month. Only one constellation is viewed at one time depending on whether the sun is heading north or south.  The months reflected in purple below are the months where the sun is heading in a northern direction.  The months in red reflect the sun’s movement in a southern direction.  Since the constellation do move one degree every seventy years, a month may start in one constellation and end in another constellation.  This diagram reflects a full month being in the same gate; however, currently today we are starting and ending a month in a different constellation.  For example, in the 1st Month of the year called Abib, we start with the constellation Aquarius and end the month with the constellation Pisces.  


The numbers in the diagram below reflect the 12 biblical months which are different then the months on our current calendar.  As Enoch explains, the first month of the year begins in the fourth gate or portal.   It is interesting to note that the sun and the stars were created on the fourth day of creation according to Genesis, chapter one.  And also that the 1st day of each season begins on the fourth day of the week which is Wednesday when using a proper biblical calendar.

The Book of Enoch, chapter 72, which describes how the diagram above works:

 “The book of the courses of the luminaries of the heaven, the relations of each, according to their classes, their dominion and their seasons, according to their names and places of origin, and according to their months, which Uriel, the holy angel, who was with me, who is their guide, showed me; and he showed me all their laws exactly as they are, and how it is with regard to all the years of the world and unto eternity, till the new creation is accomplished which dureth till eternity. 2. And this is the first law of the luminaries: the luminary the Sun has its rising in the eastern portals of the heaven, and its setting in the western portals of the heaven. 3. And I saw six portals in which the sun rises, and six portals in which the sun sets and the moon rises and sets in these portals, and the leaders of the stars and those whom they lead: six in the east and six in the west, and all following each other in accurately corresponding order: also many windows to the right and left of these portals. 4. And first there goes forth the great luminary, named the Sun, and his circumference is like the circumference of the heaven, and he is quite filled with illuminating and heating fire. 5. The chariot on which he ascends, the wind drives, and the sun goes down from the heaven and returns through the north in order to reach the east, and is so guided that he comes to the appropriate (lit. 'that') portal and shines in the face of the heaven. 6. In this way he rises in the first month in the great portal, which is the fourth those six portals in the cast. 7. And in that fourth portal from which the sun rises in the first month are twelve window-openings, from which proceed a flame when they are opened in their season. 8. When the sun rises in the heaven, he comes forth through that fourth portal thirty mornings in succession, and sets accurately in the fourth portal in the west of the heaven. 9. And during this period the day becomes daily longer and the night nightly shorter to the thirtieth morning. 10. On that day the day is longer than the night by a ninth part, and the day amounts exactly to ten parts and the night to eight parts. 11. And the sun rises from that fourth portal, and sets in the fourth and returns to the fifth portal of the east thirty mornings, and rises from it and sets in the fifth portal. 12. And then the day becomes longer by †two† parts and amounts to eleven parts, and the night becomes shorter and amounts to seven parts. 13. And it returns to the east and enters into the sixth portal, and rises and sets in the sixth portal one-and-thirty mornings on account of its sign. 14. On that day the day becomes longer than the night, and the day becomes double the night, and the day becomes twelve parts, and the night is shortened and becomes six parts. 15. And the sun mounts up to make the day shorter and the night longer, and the sun returns to the east and enters into the sixth portal, and rises from it and sets thirty mornings. 16. And when thirty mornings are accomplished, the day decreases by exactly one part, and becomes eleven parts, and the night seven. 17. And the sun goes forth from that sixth portal in the west, and goes to the east and rises in the fifth portal for thirty mornings, and sets in the west again in the fifth western portal. 18. On that day the day decreases by †two† parts, and amounts to ten parts and the night to eight parts. 19. And the sun goes forth from that fifth portal and sets in the fifth portal of the west, and rises in the fourth portal for one-and-thirty mornings on account of its sign, and sets in the west. 20. On that day the day is equalized with the night, [and becomes of equal length], and the night amounts to nine parts and the day to nine parts. 21. And the sun rises from that portal and sets in the west, and returns to the east and rises thirty mornings in the third portal and sets in the west in the third portal. 22. And on that day the night becomes longer than the day, and night becomes longer than night, and day shorter than day till the thirtieth morning, and the night amounts exactly to ten parts and the day to eight parts. 23. And the sun rises from that third portal and sets in the third portal in the west and returns to the east, and for thirty mornings rises in the second portal in the east, and in like manner sets in the second portal in the west of the heaven. 24. And on that day the night amounts to eleven parts and the day to seven parts. 25. And the sun rises on that day from that second portal and sets in the west in the second portal, and returns to the east into the first portal for one-and-thirty mornings, and sets in the first portal in the west of the heaven. 26. And on that day the night becomes longer and amounts to the double of the day: and the night amounts exactly to twelve parts and the day to six. 27. And the sun has (therewith) traversed the divisions of his orbit and turns again on those divisions of his orbit, and enters that portal thirty mornings and sets also in the west opposite to it. 28. And on that night has the night decreased in length by a †ninth† part, and the night has become eleven parts and the day seven parts. 29. And the sun has returned and entered into the second portal in the east, and returns on those his divisions of his orbit for thirty mornings, rising and setting. 30. And on that day the night decreases in length, and the night amounts to ten parts and the day to eight. 31. And on that day the sun rises from that portal, and sets in the west, and returns to the east, and rises in the third portal for one-and-thirty mornings, and sets in the west of the heaven. 32. On that day the night decreases and amounts to nine parts, and the day to nine parts, and the night is equal to the day and the year is exactly as to its days three hundred and sixty-four. 33. And the length of the day and of the night, and the shortness of the day and of the night arise--through the course of the sun these distinctions are made (lit. 'they are separated'). 34. So it comes that its course becomes daily longer, and its course nightly shorter. 35. And this is the law and the course of the sun, and his return as often as he returns sixty times and rises, i.e. the great luminary which is named the sun, for ever and ever. 36. And that which (thus) rises is the great luminary, and is so named according to its appearance, according as the Lord commanded. 37. As he rises, so he sets and decreases not, and rests not, but runs day and night, and his light is sevenfold brighter than that of the moon; but as regards size they are both equal.”

The diagram below shows how the earth tilts causing the Northern Hemisphere to receive more daylight in the summer and less daylight in the winter.  The summer solstice occurs when the sun is directly overhead of the Tropic of Cancer.  The winter solstice occurs when the sun’s position is directly overhead of the Tropic of Capricorn.  These two tropics were named this during the time of Enoch’s life since the constellation of Cancer was back then the most northern constellation over head during the summer solstice and constellation of Capricorn was the most southern constellation back then during the winter solstice (see diagram above).  Therefore, this proves that this information was documented around the time of Enoch’s life.  



The 3rd biblical month now starts at the end of the Aries constellation (Aries is the smallest constellation) and beginning of the constellation of Taurus now due to the movement of the Mazzaroth or Zodiac.  The sun’s position at the end of the 3rd month, on the 31st day also called the 91st day of the spring quarter which is called the summer solstice is actually in between Taurus and Gemini now.  Therefore, the constellation Cancer is no longer the most northern constellation any longer as it was during Enoch’s lifetime.  

The biblical 9th month begins in the constellation of Libra; however on the last day on the 9th month, which is either called the 31st day or the 91st day of the fall quarter, the winter solstice now occurs between the constellations Scorpio and Sagittarius and not at Capricorn any longer like it did during Enoch’s lifetime.

Enoch’s circuit of the sun tracked time with a sidereal day and year.  A sidereal year is 23.60 hours shorter than our current calendar.  Our current Gregorian calendar tracks the year tropically and is not as accurate.  In fact today’s astronomers use the Julian calendar day and year for tracking time since it is more accurate than our current day Gregorian calendar.

Below is a picture of the spring equinox and winter solstice that I took from my front porch in Missouri.  The sun appears much bigger on the equinox since the sun is so much closer to me.  On the winter solstice the sun is rising all the way down in the southern hemisphere on the Tropic of Capricorn; therefore appears much smaller to me.  Notice how far away the sun is rising from the electric pole on the winter solstice; however on the equinox the sun is close to the pole. The picture was taken two days after the winter solstice since the sky was too cloudy on the other days. 


Stone Circuits of the Sun

Noah’s descendants have been tracking the circuit of the sun ever since Noah’s flood in many places all over the world.  This ancient mound in Peru shows how the yearly circuit of the sun is viewed from the earth (more info here).


There are lots of stone made circuits on the earth that track the circuit of the sun and here are a few examples:

Conclusion

Now each time you see the Topic of Cancer or Capricorn on a map remember that it was placed there during the time that Enoch and Noah lived.  Let’s also remember that is was Noah’s and Jacob-Israel’s descendants that built the stone circuits to track the sun.
