The story of Enoch is one of my favorite Bible Mysteries.
Reblogged from Unashamed of Jesus
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. Genesis 5:24
Life can be a mystery sometimes, why do some people suffer while others live in luxury? Why do some die young while other live a long life? A lot of these things we don’t know, how about Enoch? Here is a man Enoch, the Bible says never died. At the end of his life God just took him.
Now this brings up a lot of interesting questions. Where did Enoch go? To Heaven? Did Enoch’s physical body ever die? The writer of Hebrews provides a little more information:
By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. Hebrews 11:5
The Bible says Enoch never saw death. So what did Enoch do to receive such great favor from God? Its says By Faith Enoch pleased God. Faith alone saved Enoch. The Bible says “Without Faith its impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6)
Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. John 8:51
Jesus said anyone who receives him will not see death! How can this be? Again by Faith alone in Jesus Christ! Does this mean we will never physically die? No of course not , Jesus is talking about the final spiritual death. So we can probably conclude Enoch might have physically died but his soul went with God forever
What can we take away from this? There is a Heaven, You have a soul, Faith in Christ you will be saved! Amen!
