Q: I was wondering why some books (apocrypha) are referenced but we don’t use them. Well I only can think of Jasher and Enoch. I’ve been researching (googling) and the only for sure answer I get is that they’re not canon.

A: A lot of them are fake. For instance the book of Jasher… the original hasn’t been found, people used it as opportunity to make up new books.

Some of them are fake, written by Greeks that were just trying to publish and misappropriate Hebrew culture.

Some were actual Hebrew books, but were not anointed. God didn’t give any scriptures after Malachi, until Matthew.

Any books written between Malachi and Jesus appearance on the scene, can be good for historical reference but not scripture. A lot happened between Malachi and Matthew but it’s not considered scripture.

This is the prophecy of the 400 year prophetic silence between Malachi and John the Baptist/Jesus:

Amos 8
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.

This is the new testament confirmation of the 400 year prophetic silence between Malachi and John the Baptist/Jesus Christ the Messiah:

Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
