     | 2,527 views

    God took Enoch to be with Himself without dying.

    Enoch - God took him home In Genesis 5 time after time we read, And he died; eight times in all. It seems a depressing genealogy that we can quickly skip over.

    based on 36 ratings
     | 2,028 views

    To be able to walk with God one must know who He is and to walk humbly before Him. Enoch’s translation without seeing physical death is typical of the translation of living saints which will occur at the rapture of the church.

One cannot walk with God without first having a true knowledge of who He is, what He demands and what He desires of us. 1. Who He is: The Almighty ...read more
