Enoch Escaped Death

The Genesis record concerning Enoch should speak to us of our own troubled times, for that is the purpose of the Word of God. It should be our concern that we hear and that we obey! The faith and deportment of the man Enoch compose a vivid picture of a powerful object lesson to encourage every believer in his or her faith. There is only one conclusion to be drawn—Enoch was translated into the presence of God because of his faith, and thus he escaped death! It is my strong conviction that Enoch’s experience of translation is a type, or preview, of the coming rapture of the Church, the Bride of Christ, described in the Scriptures. It is evident that there was no funeral for Enoch. Perhaps members of his family did not fully understand his walk with God, but they could answer with the facts! “He is gone! We thought he was extreme in his beliefs but now he is gone, and we are still here in a troubled world!”

Verse

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death . . . he had this testimony, that he pleased God. Hebrews 11:5

Thought

It should be our concern that we hear and that we obey!

Prayer

Lord, I pray that You will take us all home soon to be with You as Enoch is. I pray that You will find in us the faith that drew him to You.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
