Heb. 11:5 ¶ By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Enoch walked with God. We don’t know much more than that about Enoch; that pretty much says it all. That is what the the faith chapter in Hebrews is about; for that matter that’s what the whole book of Hebrews is about, walking with God. The author of Hebrews builds his whole case that culminates in chapter ten with the torn veil and open access into the holy of holies, ready entrance into the very presence of the Most High God. Chapter eleven begins to describe faith. The whole point of the book was to bring us to the place of Enoch, Enoch walked with God and then he was not; God took him. Here are some powerful thoughts from Andrew Murray on Enoch’s walk of faith.
“To know God, to see God in everything and everywhere, in our daily life to be conscious of His presence so that we always walk with Him-this is the true nobility of man; this is the life that faith lives; this is the blessedness Jesus has now fully revealed in the rending of the veil. Faith can walk with God. He that cometh to God must believe that He is. And also a rewarder of them that seek after Him. Faith believes that God can be found; that He can and will make Himself known; that He cares for everyone who truly longs for Him; that He has a divine reward for the seeker after Him. In seeking Him the way may at times be dark and long, and the progress slow; faith honors, God with its confidence as the God of love and truth; He will reward and bless. Let the deep restfulness of this assured conviction be the root of all your seeking after God.”
Could it be possible that this is what the rapture is all about? Could there possibly be a generation moving in this Enoch kind of faith, faith to walk with God? Can you imagine a move of the Holy Spirit in this dark generation where thousands of Christians actually walk with God like Enoch? ‘Impossible’, someone said. ‘Impractical’, someone else said. But isn’t that what Christianity is supposed to be in the eyes of man; impossible and impractical? I think another burst of Holy Ghost wind is about to change everything again. Get ready, the God of Enoch lives.
