Default Enoch & The Watchers

What are the Watchers? Where did they come from? Where does the story of the Watchers come from?

Is this biblical?

## The watchers are in the book of Daniel:
  • Dan 4:17 This matter [is] by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
Later on, they play a part in 1 Enoch.

Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise [men] of Babylon before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream.

Dan 4:17"'The sentence is by the decree of the watchers, the decision by the word of the holy ones, to the end that the living may know that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will and sets over it the lowliest of men.




The chosen ones are the watchers. The wise people on earth are the watchers
(the chosen ones) called by God. The watchers are the prophets of the world.


Another mystery of out Lord!

Praise the one
