|“||Gabriel and Michael accompanied me before the Throne of Glory and placed me before the Presence of the Lord. He was different than I imagined, He was much more beautiful than I imagined. He looked like a man, but He also looked like a woman, His hair was white as snow and His Presence was overwhelming. Around Him there were myriads upon myriads of angels who sang an unspeakable chorus of praise to His Creator, who was seated among them.||„|
Enoch is the son of Jared and is a direct descendant of Father Adam, being known as the seventh after Adam. During his lifetime, Enoch was a very benevolent and just man, being considered the most just among men. Enoch was such a righteous man that when human beings had been corrupted by Ayin, God had lost faith in humanity, but thanks to Enoch, the flame of God's faith in humanity was rekindled.
In reality, Enoch is an avatar of the Archangel Metatron, known as the mightiest Archangel of God. After Enoch died, Metatron merged again with his avatar, and God then placed in Metatron His Holy Name and placed him on a Throne of Glory next to His, and thereafter Enoch/Metatron became known as the "Measure of the Lord", "Lesser God" and "Prince of Divine Presence," among several other names and titles.
It is believed that the famous Pyramids of Egypt, among many other great monuments of the ancient world, were erected in honor of Patriarch Enoch.
Enoch is a man who was a direct descendant of Adam, which means that he inherited immortality from his ancestors, possessing a very long life span. Which means that even after turning over 100 years old, he still looked relatively young.
Being an avatar of Metatron, he had a beautiful and divine appearance that only an angel would have. As time passed, Enoch aged like any man, getting a white hair and beard.
