Enoch was born over 1,000 years before the flood of Noah. He was born in 622 A.C.A, (after creation of Adam), but the flood occurred in 1656 A.C.A. By the time Methuselah was born, Enoch had already been told of the flood to come. The name "Methuselah" means "when he dies, the flood will come." Methuselah died the same year as the flood. So, the name Enoch gave his son showed his knowledge of the flood to come.

Before his marriage to Edna, Enoch had two visions, one of which he had twice. The first time he had it was right after he had learned how to write. The second time he had it was just before he married.

Enoch 83:3-8
In a vision I saw  the waters of heaven thrown down upon the earth. Also, parts of the earth fell into a great abyss, and mountains piled on mountains, and hills sank. Tall trees were ripped out by the roots. I began to shout, "The earth is destroyed!" Malalel awakened me and said, "Why do you cry and moan, my son?" I told him the vision. He said, "Your vision concerns the sin of the earth; it is about to be destroyed. Now you should arise and intercede..."

The flood was predicted far in advance as a judgment.
Enoch 54:7-10
In that day the punishment of the Lord of spirits will come, and all the storehouses of water above the earth will come. These waters will join, as male and female. All those who dwell on the earth will be destroyed. When the floods come many will cry out and admit their sin, yet they shall die in the flood."  

Enoch was even shown about the rainbow to be part of the post-flood covenant.
Enoch 55:12
"... I will never again destroy all men by a flood -but I will put a sign in heaven as a pledge between me and them forever."

Anthropologists have collected 250 to 300 flood stories from different nations. If all peoples are descended from Noah, then these stories show that common ancestry. Each story has two or more people being saved because of a special boat.

Noah wrote a book known as "The Generations of Noah", and Moses included part of it in Genesis. (Genesis 6:19 - 9:28) He related the story of the flood as he saw it personally.

The Babylonian tradition shows remarkable similarities. It was recorded by Berosus in 300 BC, basing his story on the archives of the temple of Marduk in Babylon. The story says Xisuthrus was warned by the gods to build a ship. He took with him friends, relatives and different animals. After the flood waters began to subside, his ship was stranded in Armenia. Birds were sent out. After leaving the ship he offered a sacrifice.

The flood tablets, found by George Smith (1872) in the library of Assurbanipal in Nineveh which were copied from tablets dating back to the first dynasty of Ur (before Abraham), tell the same story as recorded by Berosus.

The Egyptians had a legend that the gods at one time purified the earth by a great flood - only a few shepherds escaped by climbing a mountain.

The Greek story tells about Deucalion, who was warned by the gods of a flood. He built an ark. The story also tells of a dove being sent out twice.
The Hindu flood story tells of Manu, who builds a ship, but only he alone was saved.

The Chinese flood story relates how Fa-he, founder of the Chinese civilization, escaped a great flood. After man had rebelled against God, Fa-he, his three sons, their wives, and Fa-he's wife escaped.

In England, the Druids had a legend that the world had been repeopled by a righteous man who had been saved in a ship from a great flood.

The Polynesian story tells of a flood where eight escape in a canoe.

The American Indians stories show that in more than 100 tribes, one, three, or eight people are saved in a boat that finally sat upon a high mountain as the waters began to subside.

The story from Greenland tells that the earth once tilted and all men drowned except one. Supposedly, he smote the earth with a stick and a woman appeared.

Each of these stories show that there is a universal concept of a flood , suggesting that they all have a common origin. Since the confusion of languages at Babel, the names have been changed -but enough details are the same to show they all come from Noah's Genesis account.

The "sons of God" in the Genesis account is a phrase that occurs five times in the Old Testament. Each time it refers to angels. (Gen. 6:1-4, Job 1:6, Job 2:1, Job 38:7, Daniel 3:28) The Septuagint translates it as "angels of God."
Josephus says "many angels of God accompanied with women and begot sons that proved unjust and despisers of all that was good... these men resembled the acts of those the Grecians called giants." (Ant. Book 1 ch. 3) "...the bones of these men are still shown to this very day." (Ant. Book 5 ch. 2)

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament teach us that angels committed sex sins, and lived contrary to nature. (Gen. 6:1-4, 2 Peter 2:4-5, Jude 6-7)

Thus the story of Enoch shows the most detailed account of these fallen angels, who caused the crisis that the flood was given to cure.
The Bible also confirms that much of the flood waters came from within the earth:

Genesis 7:11 "fountains of the great deep opened up..."

The earth had been covered by a great vapor canopy which was suspended above the earth since the second day of creation. The Bible tells us that at flood time- "the windows of heaven were open." So this great vapor canopy, now empty and known as the "thermosphere", accounted for the forty days and forty nights of rain. The greenhouse affect, the earth had, was then gone.

These two sources of water accounted for the flood waters of Noah's flood. Normal precipitation could not have flooded the earth, (If all the water in the present atmosphere precipitated at once, it would cover the earth to an average depth of two inches.

So the waters now frozen at the poles and the water that returned to the chasms of the earth account for the water that at one time covered the earth during the flood.)

In the book of Enoch, chapter 106, we find Enoch's message to Methuselah and Lamech when Noah was born.

Enoch 106:13-17
“...since my father Jared's day, the fallen angels have been sinning. They sin and are promiscuous with women. They have begotten children. Because of this, there will be great destruction on the earth, a flood shall come, and its waters remain for a year. This child you speak of, and his three sons will be saved. The earth shall be cleansed of the giants born to the fallen angels.”

Enoch tells us a little about the details of the ship, other than the surprising fact that angels were to have a part in building the ark.

Enoch 67:2
"The angels are to help you make a wooden boat, and when they have finished that task, I will keep it safe, and protect the seed of life within it."

This fact is unconfirmed in the Bible, but is not denied either.

This flood wiped out the conspiracy of the devil to corrupt the seed of woman, with the seed of fallen angels. The flood stopped that plot, but the devil then tried again with the conspiracy of Belial.

Belial’s conspiracy
Belial is the one called "the ruler of this world". The Bible refers to him as "the prince of this world" (John 12:31, 16:11), and as "the god of this world" (II Cor. 4:4). He is the head of the "rulers of the darkness of this world" (Eph. 6:12).

"Belial" (which means "being of no ascent") is actually his title. His name is "Metanbuchus" which is from the two Hebrew words "mattan bukah"

meaning "the gift of the abyss". This one is half human and half angelic spirit (from the angels that co-habited with women in Genesis creating a race of giants).  "He dwelt in the heart of Manasseh" (9:11), he also inhabited Alexander the Great, and later Jesus bound him to the abyss. Someday, he will be released to inhabit the Antichrist. He is the "gift" of the abyss. A dreadful and horrible gift to return to this earth, but like his name - Metanbuchus - he has a destiny for these last days.

His title, Belial, is from the Hebrew - Bal-ya-al - meaning "a being of no ascent or resurrection"  There is no resurrection for these half-angelic, half human spirits.

Psalms 41:8
"An evil disease (literally =Belial) say they cleaveth fast unto him, and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more."

Isaiah 26:13-14
"O Lord our God, other lords beside Thee have had dominion over us, but by Thee only will make mention of Thy name.  They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased (Rephaim, a name of the giants created by the fornication of angels with women), they shall not rise! Therefore, hast Thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish."

The term "sons of Belial" is used often in the Old Testament (Deut. 13:13, Judg, 19:22, 20:13, I Sam. 1:16, 2:12, 10:27, 25:17, 25, 30:22, II Sam. 16:17, 20:1, 23:6, I Ki. 21:10, 13, II Chron. 13:7).

Ephesians 6:12 shows different levels of evil spirits:
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against: principalities (fallen arch angels) powers (fallen angels) rulers of the darkness of this world (half-angelic, half human spirits) wicked spirits in the heavenlies (pre- adamite human spirits of a creation before Adam)."

Belial is the leader of the "rulers" category.  Sammael is also of the same kind and he rules the ones in the area known as Sheol. Belial is the "beast out of the abyss" referred to by John in Revelation.  He is an evil spirit, who will use the Antichrist to restore the old Grecian empire as the eighth kingdom. Belial is the one who inhabited and empowered Alexander the Great, and built the old Grecian empire.

When Jesus came, His death and resurrection meant a binding of this Belial to the abyss until the last days. He is confined now, until this release to restore first the Grecian empire, then the old Roman empire.

Revelation 17:8
"The beast that thou sawest was, and is not, and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (the man of sin, i.e. the Antichrist)."
Jesus came to cast out this Belial.

John 12:31
"...now shall the prince of this world be cast out."

When the Spirit came at Pentecost, Belial had already been judged and imprisoned into the abyss:
John 16:11
"of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged."

II Thessalonians 2:3 speaks of the "man of lawlessness" and "he that opposes and exalteth himself against all that is called God... Many believe that "man of sin (or lawlessness) is a reference to Belial, and the other a reference to the Antichrist. That makes this a reference to the Antichrist as one possessed by Belial.

Daniel 5:10-11
"...there shall rise unto you from the tribe of Judah and of Levi, the salvation (Yeshua) of the Lord, and He shall make war against Belial."

This Belial was an opponent of Christ. Belial has shown great antagonism against God and Jesus throughout history.

II Cor. 6:15
"What concord hath Christ with Belial?"

Revelation 13:1 speaks of a "beast" that will "rise out of the sea (speaking of the mass of humanity) representing the evil spirit (Belial) that inhabits the Antichrist.

Revelation 13:11 speaks of "another beast coming up out of the earth", and this is reference to Sammael, the evil demonic ruler in Sheol who will inhabit the false prophet.

Apoc. of Isa. 10:2 
"Belial, the evil demon who rules this age since its inception as the king of demons, will come from his place (the abyss) and inhabit the likeness of man, and dwell in a lawless king."

Revelation 11:7
"The beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them (the two witnesses) and shall overcome them and kill them..."

Sammael, is the angel in Sheol, the angel of death or of the underworld. He inspired Manasseh to saw Isaiah in half (6:41).  He is a subordinate to Belial (7:8).  Sammael means "venom of God".  He is spoken of much in Jewish literature, both Talmudic and post-Talmudic.  He is called the "prince of devils" (Deut. rabb. 11:9). Sammael is his name, and his title is "Malchira" meaning "evil king" (7:8). In the time of Isaiah, Belial inhabited mainly Manasseh, while Sammael concentrated on Belchira, the false prophet.

Belial is the demon power who has inhabited Alexander the Great, Manasseh, and soon will inhabit the Antichrist.  The Antichrist is spoken here as "one who has slain his mother."  This may be a literal truth, or a figure of speech indicating the depth of degradation and sinfulness of this man. It would take the most horrible sinfulness for one to kill the one who gave him birth.

This Belial will be utterly defeated during Armageddon, and the Millennial rule of Jesus will be void of this Belial.

Isaiah 14:4-6:
"...The Lord hath broken the staff of the 'wicked one' (Belial), ...he (Belial) that ruled the nations in anger is persecuted, and none hindereth."

II Thessalonians 2:7-8
"...he who now letteth (hinders) will let (hinder) until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked One be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming."

The demons are fighting as never before, and we must also fight as never before. It is time to put demons into the abyss, lest they hinder the revival of the last days. Many have ignored the demonic powers, but they have not gone away, and we either battle them or be hurt by them. It is time to battle and bind and cast them into the abyss!

Evil demons, and evil powers are battling the saints and prophets of today.  They are very angry knowing that their time is short, but we have the power of the Lord, and the authority of Jesus to defeat every evil power out there.

Mark 16:17
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils."

James 4:7-8
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you."

The conspiracy involving Belial involved mixing of human and angelic dna again, and then trying and trying through cloning and dna mixtures to make beings that were evil and powerful.  In the Book of Baruch, a prophet at the same time as Jeremiah we read:  
Baruch   ch. 8.
I will call the Sirens from the sea, and the Lilin from the deserts, and the Shedim and dragons from the forests saying to them: 'Awake and bind your loins unto mourning, and take up with me lamentation, and mourn with me.

part one, stay tuned for part 2
