28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
I just over-heard a story about Enoch that blessed my heart. Maybe you have heard it before, but I had not. I trust you will enjoy it also.
First of all Let us see who Enoch was or just refresh our memory a bit.
18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch: 19 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: 20 And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died. 21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: 22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: 23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: 24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
5 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. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these,….
To th the best of my knowledge this is all that is said about Enoch. He was the son of Jared; father of Methuselah; was sit a young man; he walked with God; he had faith in God; and he pleased God. Then he was no more…
The story goes something like this.
The little girls said they had talked about Enoch.
“Oh,” her mom said “what about Enoch.”
“He took a walk with God,” she told her mother.”
“Where did they walk to?”
The little girl looked intently at her mom and told her the story of Enoch. “You see mom everyday God would come and knock on Enoch’s door and He would ask Enoch to go for a walk with Him and Enoch did whole heartedly. Everyday God and Enoch went for a walk and talked. God would knock at Enoch’s door and He’d come running out to go with Him. Enoch enjoyed his walks with God so much he started to wait on the porch for God, then they would go for their walk. Then Enoch began to wait the gate for God and they would for their walk. One day when God met Enoch, He told him they were going for a long walk so they better get started He had a lot He wanted to tell him. They walked all day long. It was getting late and Enoch asked God, ‘shouldn’t were turn back it is awfully late?’ God replied to Enoch, “your house is a long way away and we are so much closer to Mine, why don’t we just go to My house.”
I trust this has blessed you as much as it did for me.
