Enoch and Elijah - Witnesses to POLE SHIFTS

Enoch and Elijah – Witnesses to Pole Shifts?



The early theologians Irenaeus and Hippolytus may have been the last heirs to the uncorrupted oral tradition of the Apostles, and both of them said that Enoch and Elijah were the two witnesses we will see in the future preaching and dying on the streets of Jerusalem in the end times.  The Bible tells us that their presence will be a sign that the Second Coming is imminent.  I believe their stories also tell of pole shifts in our past, and lend additional support to the idea that they will be a witness to an upcoming pole shift, when we receive “a new heaven and a new earth.”


The Bible tells us that Enoch lived a total of 365 years.  This lifespan brings two obvious ideas to mind: first, that no one normally lives that long – and second, that the years of Enoch’s life match the number of days in a year.  If this is meant to draw our attention to the sun and the number of days it takes for the earth to orbit the sun, what else might we take from the story of Enoch to apply to the sun?


Enoch’s life is broken down into two portions: at the age of 65 he fathered Methuselah, then continued to live another 300 years before he “walked with God” and was “translated away so that he did not see death.” (Hebrews 11:5)  The word “translated” comes from the Greek “metatithemi” which means “taken to another place.”  Because I have spent many years researching topics like pole shifts, this makes me think the story of Enoch may incorporate a coded message about a pole shift event in the distant past when the sun (symbolized by Enoch in this story) would have been positioned in the sky next to the galactic center (God) when it suddenly shifted its apparent position in the sky and was “taken to another place.”


I also suspect that the way the Bible breaks down Enoch’s life into two unequal portions might be similar to the way the Maya broke their year down based on the dates on which the sun passes directly overhead in the zenith.  Every spring equinox in March, the sun is directly above the equator at noon.  Lands north of the equator and south of the Tropic of Cancer witness the sun directly overhead at noon at some point prior to the first day of summer.  For example, at Chichen Itza, where the Maya built the great Pyramid of Kukulkan, the sun is directly overhead on May 22.  The sun appears to keep moving north until summer, then starts to fall southwards again.  Chichen Itza experiences a second solar zenith on July 19.  At another Mayan city (Izapa – which is farther south, at a different latitude) where this pattern was first recognized, the two zenith dates are 105 days apart, and the Maya there broke the year into 105 and 260 portions based on the spread of the zenith passage dates at Izapa’s latitude.  What latitude, I wondered, would experience zenith passage dates 65 days apart – and could such zenith dates possibly point us to the previous position of Jerusalem, before the last pole shift?


A little research led me to a chart labelled “Zenith passage dates of the Sun for Observers in Different Latitudes” in Anthony Aveni’s Skywatchers of Ancient Mexico.  Just below 20 degrees north there are 65 days between zenith dates.  Could this be the latitude the holy site we now know as Jerusalem used to be located at prior to the last major shift of the earth’s crust relative to its axis of rotation?  Could the location of this ancient holy site possibly even explain why the Maya had a special term for the 65 day period (Aveni calls it the Cociyo) when neither Izapa nor Chichen Itza experience zeniths 65 days apart?


At first glance, this seems to be a dead end and a bad theory, because we know from other data that the previous North Pole was located on the west side of Hudson Bay.  When the North Pole was there, the land that is now called Jerusalem was approximately eleven and a half degrees north latitude, not just under twenty degrees north latitude.   Jerusalem, at its former latitude, had zenith passage dates well over 100 days apart.  However, I soon noticed that the change in latitude – the northward movement Jerusalem experienced as a result of the last pole shift – is approximately 19.8 degrees.  Which means that Enoch’s being taken away in a “translation” and the years of his life may be astronomical references to a pole shift after all.



the image above may approximate the next position of the “new earth” if the North Pole is near Lake Baikal, as Professor Charles Hapgood suggests it might be in his books.


I believe that cosmic events emanating from the galactic center cause recurring, periodic, and predictable pole shifts on earth.  At the same time I believe the sun will appear to be dark (Revelation 6:12 “the sun became black as sackcloth”) for three days, at the point in the year when it appears at the crossing point of the galactic axis and the ecliptic – the apparent path of the sun and planets.  I suspect it is no coincidence that Jesus died on a cross and was dead for three days and that we are told the sun went dark when he died.  Jonah was in darkness in the belly of the whale for three days, and I believe this is a reference to the sun going dark as it passes through the cosmic leviathan of the Milky Way’s central bulge along the galactic axis.


Elijah encountered “a chariot of fire.”   The Book of Enoch mentions “the sun… and the chariot in which it rises.” (Enoch 72:5)  We can safely assume Elijah represents another heavenly body which encountered the sun. “And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven” just after he walked past Bethel (Beth-El = the house of God = the galactic center) and crossed the Jordan River (the Milky Way) and encountered the chariot of fire (the sun.)  So this occurred when the sun (and some other heavenly body – I suggest Jupiter) had just passed the galactic center and the axis of the Milky Way.  2 Kings 2:17 describes the men sent out to look for Elijah after he disappeared – “They searched three days but could not find him.”  Another symbolic reference to the three days of darkness and confusion.


And then one of the even stranger comments in the Bible appears in 2 Kings 2:24 “Two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads” from Bethel who had previously mocked Elijah’s son.  Now I have been to that part of Israel.  I have stood in the Jordan River.  Trees are scarce, and I never saw “woods” or a forest dense enough that bears could emerge and suddenly surprise anyone.  And even if we grant that there had been thick woods and a pair of real bears, can you imagine 42 young men not scattering and running off in different directions?  Surely a bear could kill a lad or two, but forty-two of them?  As C.M. Houck commented in The Celestial Spheres: Keys to the Suppressed wisdom of the Ancients: “How could two bears possibly manage to outrun, catch, and destroy forty-two terrified, hyperactive juvenile delinquents?  They couldn’t.  This is sacred language.”  And what I think he means is that this is another astronomical reference, this time to the two “polar bears” – the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor – the Big Bear and Little Bear near the celestial North Pole.  I suggest that during the last pole shift, it was noticed that these “bears” seemed to suddenly move far faster than usual into the sky, corresponding with the sudden disappearance of 42 visible stars which unexpectedly fell below the opposite horizon.


UPDATE: In December 2014 I came up with more evidence that Enoch CLEARLY wrote from a location at approximately 50 degrees latitude – nowhere near the Middle East, and probably the capital city of Atlantis.  Read that article HERE


In my last book, End Times and 2019, I conclude that the Bible, the Maya, and the Egyptians all left clues pointing to the next pole shift coinciding with the end of the Tribulation and Judgment Day in late December, 2019.  I suggest that Jupiter is the astronomical representation of the prophet Elijah, that the Sun represents Jesus, and that the conjunction of Jupiter and the Sun on Judgment Day represents Elijah anointing Jesus Christ as King.  I believe that Enoch and Elijah have been portrayed as witnesses to a previous pole shift, and that their stories give us clues about that last pole shift.  I believe they will be the two end times witnesses of the tribulation, and that they will witness during the reign of the Antichrist, just before the next catastrophic pole shift in 2019.  If you appreciate my application of “forensic astronomy” to Bible prophecy as detailed above, you will probably appreciate both my previous book – End Times and 2019 – and my new book focusing on events in the middle of the final seven years in June 2016 – Antichrist 2016-2019.

      Great article, I have read both of your books and I am still having to re-read and look up information. You have provided so much with resources and references its wonderful. Awesome information and it really seems to fit together. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to the subject.

    • David Montaigne

      Thank you deceit me not – it’s great to know people are reading and appreciating my books – I hope you write book reviews!

        The theory about the two bears and 42 lads was mind blowing! Have you considered that the Two Witnesses, are a group of people, those calling the masses back to God’s Law, and those prophesying, just as the original two witnesses, the Law and the Prophets?

        Their bodies lying in the street because of biowarfare upon them, though claimed as a natural epidemic? No one willing to get close because of fear of catching the ‘disease’?

        God said, “I myself will put it in their minds to do this terrible thing”…..He put “hooks in their jaw”

        As for the pole shift, Isaiah declares it at 24:20 and look at the constellations and how high the seven sisters are at this time. The seasons are off, and this winter is starting late and will be extended into early june for many parts of the U.S.


        Blessings in Yeshua, Jesus Christ

          Consider the Two Olive branches, the Two Lampstands, and the Two Churches, Smyrna and Philadelphia mentioned in the seven letters at the start of the Revelation to John. His Holy Ones, the elect. They are the two witnesses who are given no censure from Christ, but are instead rewarded for holding fast to declaring the truth despite oppression from those who call themselves jews and are not, but are of the synagogue of satan.

          “I will cut short those days for my elect’s sake, lest no flesh remain alive upon the earth” – Yahweh, God Almighty

          For those in doubt of our Father and His Word, Yeshua, Jesus Christ, please consider the evidence carefully, and there is plenty to consider….


          Blessings in Yeshua, Jesus Christ

      Since a pole shift is relative to the magnetic field changing positions like the one now from Canada to Siberia, what would be the catalyst for the pole shift? it doesn’t just happen for no reason. There have been pole shifts in the past that didn’t do anything to the earth and its inhabitants yet this one is different. anyway, thanks for the information. People in the past were not all dumb and without knowledge like some wish people to believe. They had better things to do than make fairy tales.

    • USN_Ret

      Excellent theory and great post. I never thought I’d be able to say that in response to an article on BIN. I will definitely check into your books.

      Your article matches Tom Horn’s book: “Zenith 2016″

      We have the written history of the apostles written in the first century. Many copies were made. They were spread far and wide. They’re accurate and uncorrupted. They are the book of Acts and letters by Paul, Peter, James, Jude, and John,

      Enoch and Elijah will be the two witnesses in Revelation because they never died. God took them to heaven.

      • Anonymous

        if you would like. here are some verses to look up covering the topic of Elijah. MAT.11: 14. MAT 17: 10-12. AND LUKE 1: 17, 76-79. i am open to the fact of a upcoming pole shift, and other mysteries concerning the star wormwood. peace

      • Mellissa

        I would hazard a guess that not a single portion of the current bible is ” accurate and uncorrupted ” It was written by people who took older non christian holy books and ancient scrolls and made the bible. Most of it is from the ancient Sumerian tablets, their myths and history became our bible.

          Your comment is going to be their claim when they come into the picture. This will be the deception, Revelations talks about. Be steadfast in your belief. They mirrored the Bible of the one & only God, and they will say, they came back as the 2nd coming. These will be false prophets, Blond hair-Blue eyed creatures. Don’t be moved and stand up for your beliefs, even if it costs you your life. The day is near, be pre-paired in every way. Soon Revelation will
          unfold, Right Before Our Very Eyes. We will all be under marshal law. This is not good.

      Great article!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Thanks for your hard work .

      Sorry, can’t buy what you are selling. The truth is NEVER sold we are told. So what does that tell you about your discombobulated gobbledegook?

      If you had the truth you would never sell it.

      The 2 witnesses are not going to be some dead guys coming back to life. Rather, it will be 2 people in the modern world that have witnessed the truth. Not witness Jesus, not witness pole shift, but the truth of all things.

      “The MYSTERY OF GOD in the BOOK OF REVELATION: The Two Witnesses, the Manchild, and the Destroyer as you have never heard them spoken of before.”


    • am123

      From the article:

      “The Bible tells us that Enoch lived a total of 365 years. This lifespan brings two obvious ideas to mind: first, that no one normally lives that long – and second, that the years of Enoch’s life match the number of days in a year.”

      During the time of Enoch, 365 was not the number of days in a year. At that time, before the flood, there was a perfect 360 days in a year (12 months x 30 days). Each month was exactly 30 days. You can extrapolate 30 day months from the timeline of the flood of Noah, which started on the 17th day of the 2nd month as per Genesis 7:11, and lasted for 5 months or 150 days ([email protected] each) as per Genesis 8:3, and ended on the 17th day of the 7th month as per Genesis 8:4.

      So God’s prophetic timeline deals with 30 day months. For example, the 42 months of the beast and the two witnesses consists of 1260 days, which is 42 x 30.

      • Huh?

        I agree with am123, although I am more interested in the true meaning of what is being said and not legalities.

        I also thought it was actually 364.25 days around the sun, that’s why we add a day every four years.

        Is seems incorrect to be not so accurate on one scale and demand such accuracy on another.

        With that said, and in consideration of Time, nothing is spoken in the literal. Taking what is written and demanding it be taken literally is a tactic of satan himself and how he manipulates the truth and confuses people from the true meaning of what is being said.

        How do I know that? As you experience life, sitting at your computer or tablet reading this from me, time is ticking away. So the instance anyone ever tries to explain what occurred in time, happened in the past. The best thing I know that tells it like it is, is a TV with a baseball game on it. But rest assured, what you are seeing and hearing is only a parabolic image of what it was like when it happened. The announcers are describing what is occurring. Everything being communicated is a repeat of what occurred when it occurred. It’s important to grasp that in your mind or you may be misunderstanding a fundamental point in this reality and when satan exhibits his power. Now, all that means, is it is impossible to explain what something is literally like unless you are experiencing it at the moment, and then, there is no explanation necessary. What is virtual reality anyway?

        For all you thinkers out there, that means, what you are reading in the Bible is being explained in “Like” terms. Even His Name is Parabolic. To fight and argue over how something is communicated is to miss the message. We use letters, words and sounds to represent what we decide it represents. It the source of these “things” that is most holy and sacred. And everything explained is referring to what happened in a moment in time.

        There is a moment in time coming that will impact all of humanity and so when you read it in the Bible, understand, it is referring to what that moment in time will be like in reality.

        All I am explaining is the parabolic nature of the Bible. Once you open your mind to that perception, things may start appearing (not literally). Maybe not so much. If you want to understand or know Christ, you have to examine His Birth, His Baptisim, His Death and His Resurrection as moments in time. After all, If Jesus was and is the God that is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, all these “happenings” in His life where simply meant to Teach His Children. He had complete and total power on how He chose to perform them and He chose to do it exactly as Moses wrote. But Moses could not write about Jesus literally. He had to speak in terms of what people believed at the time and make a comparison. What is was like.

        That is why Jesus told John the Baptist we have to do these things the way it was written. Jesus was and is the reality of everything that was and is to Come. He was fulfilling scripture at every moment of His Life. His Life, when completed, is what is The Cornerstone. Again, that can not be understood literally. It is simply meaning when your life/time here is over, it is written in stone. You can not go back and change it. It is only now, at this moment in time you have any power to do anything about anything as far as your life. You can decide what is written on your stone. Jesus died so you can have that power of choice. That is what it is like.

        The fact The Truth was Nailed to the cross should testify to everyone what this world thinks of the Truth. To not realize that is to be naïve. That is a parabolic statement. It was what happened literally in reality, but it is also what it is currently like.

        When Jesus returns, the Truth will be revealed. It will bring both life and death.
        With all this said, I am not disagreeing with the concept of what this man is saying. But what I know, is the people who wrote this in the Bible, knew what they were talking about. They were not speculating. There most assuredly is a true meaning to what is written. I believe they are writing about, or call it giving their testimony like a witness, something they experienced in time. And they used Bears and Lads to mean how something was like that no doubt.

        And yes, I agree with the authors comments concerning Irenaeus, Hippolytus, Elijah and Enoch.

      The catalyst for the pole shift will be the coming of the planetoid Nibiru.Look to the sky at the autumn equinox of 2017 when the planet Jupiter is supposed to be destroyed by Nibiru.After that occurs it will be heading towards us.
      I cannot say when it will arrive here.It is too early to tell.When it parks itself near this planet,there will not only be a pole shift,it will be like in the time of Noah.The Hopi prophecy is about this event.

      Enoch claims that God spoke to him in person, told him the world is shaped like an oblong trunk, the sky is a solid barrier with holes to allow the light of the sun, moon and stars, that God sits on the solid barrier sky watching over us and lobbing stars down to Earth in divine retribution. Many stars are needed because they are so tiny.

      It more likely explains why there is no trace of your God, it went off for a jolly on it’s day off and has gotten lost… still looking for an oblong planet with a solid barrier sky.

      The south pole is a sine wave, signified by blue. The north pole is a digital square wave, signified by red.

      Anode/cathode situation here. Except digital fake clipped wave vs analogue sine. The North pole didnt exist until Genesis 3:7 There was a vibrating source, the Word,, and a counterbalance. The counterbalance was given leverage at the time of Mankinds fall.

      The battle between good and evil, life and death, is only clear when you realize everything you know about the Bible, gravity, electricity and the universe IS A BLATANT LIE.

      You think Tesla was a nut? That his ideas didnt work? That Leedskalnin wasnt aware of Solomon? Tesla knew what God was. Leedskalnin knew how the ancients maintained their reigns and how they held Godhood status. Tesla knew what the adversary was. As soon as he realized it, he realized the entire plot of civilization. Satans serpent empire. Without the north poles artificial signal, counteracting the southern Sine, there would be no death. Ascension would be an instinct. Just like we were created until the rebel architect took his limited knowledge and used to put up that barrier and release hell within the walls; LIFE AS WE KNOW IT.

      Satans machine is winding down, he has no choice in the matter. And this being the last chance he has… inner hell and outer hell are soon to be mingled..
