This article explores sun cycles in the Book Of Enoch. This complex scientific fact is documented in detail in the Book of Enoch. Enoch’s descriptions are superlatively worthy of a modern astronomical agency.
We can safely say that Enoch the Apostle was the first to describe the phases of the sun as it was taught to him by Archangel Uriel (Book of Enoch 72: 1).
Synonyms for Sun Cycle include:
– solar cycle.
– sun phases.
Brief overview of the sun
NASA (2022) describes the sun as a hot star made of hydrogen and helium. It is 4.5 billion years old and lies at the center of the solar system.
Temperature of the sun
The sun has a core and a surface, with the latter called the photosphere.
The temperature varies by location. The sun is hottest at its core and relatively cooler at the surface or photosphere.
The temperature at the core is 27 million °F (15 million °C), while the temperature at the surface or photosphere is cooler at 10,000 °F (5,500 °C).
The Sun’s outer atmosphere is called the corona. The corona becomes hotter as the distance increases away from the surface. The temperature at the corona is much hotter than the surface/photosphere and reaches up to 3.5 million °F (2 million °C).
Obviously, anything close to the sun will become nano ash to the nth degree. Yet Apostle John saw an Angel standing in the sun (Revelation 19: 17).
The sun’s magnetic field, as cited by NASA, 2022
The Sun generates magnetic fields that extend out into space. Once in space, the interplanetary magnetic field is formed. The interplanetary magnetic field affects the solar system.
A wind called the SOLAR WIND carries the interplanetary magnetic field through the solar system. The sun emits a stream of electrically charged gas that blows outward in all directions.
As the Sun rotates, its magnetic field spins out into a large rotating spiral, which is called the Parker spiral.
The sun’s magnetic field dominates the heliosphere, a vast bubble of space. that is dominated by the Sun’s magnetic field is called the heliosphere.
The Sun cycle
The phrase Sun Cycle refers to the phases of high and low activity that the sun goes through. The Sun has geographic poles which change magnetic polarity every 11 years. These poles are north and south.
During the change of magnetic polarity, the north and south magnetic poles swap positions. During this cycle, the Sun’s photosphere, chromosphere, and corona change from quiet and calm to violently active.
This period of violent activity is known as solar maximum. Solar storm activity increases greatly. Common events include eruptions of sunspots or solar flares.
Solar cycle timing
The most recent solar cycle started in December 2019 with the occurrence of solar minimum. Solar maximum is predicted to occur in July 2025.
One way to track the solar cycle is by counting the number of sunspots. The beginning of a solar cycle is a solar minimum, or when the Sun has the least sunspots. Over time, solar activity—and the number of sunspots—increases.
The middle of the solar cycle is the solar maximum, or when the Sun has the most sunspots. As the cycle ends, it fades back to the solar minimum and then a new cycle begins (NASA, 2022).
Effect of solar cycles on the earth
Earth is affected by solar activity since massive amounts of energy and particles can be released. Weather systems in space are called SPACE WEATHER. Space weather fluctuates with variations in the activity of the Sun.
“Space weather” can negatively affect satellites, GPS, and radio communications. It also can destroy power grids, and corrode pipelines that carry oil and gas.
Appearance of Sun cycles in the Book of Enoch
One of the first observations that Enoch made about the sun is its daily rotation. This rotation is a scientific fact which will not change forever:
Chapter 72: 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

The upcoming post will attempt to explore more of Enoch’s observations about the Sun Cycles.
