Faith Alone

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!

    “So we can probably conclude Enoch might have physically died but his soul went with God forever”…bro,no where in the bible does it say Enoch died,it states he walked with God and then was no more,so that means he was still alive. I see Enoch as one who represents the rapture of the church,as I’m sure many do,we who are still alive will be caught up in the air to meet the Lord.

    Now,about faith alone…the bible is clear that faith without works is dead. I understand what you were trying to say and agreed that we as Christians need to have faith in Jesus alone…it’s what we are called to do “we walk by faith not by sight”.

    I remember many years ago,long before I walked with Jesus like I do now. I met a woman named Diane,when I would look at her I could see God. Her eyes depicted His love and mercy. I was not someone who believed something unless I could see it with my own eyes,you might say I was like Thomas,a doubting person. Diane would say this to me…believe that I believe. Now,I’ll be honest,it was easy for me to do that because I could see in Diane’s eyes that there was a God. So my faith first lied in that. Because Diane believed I could too! I love how God will use someone to bring them to a place where they can develop the kind of faith Jesus talks about,and I have said those very words to people I have met who are struggling with faith.

    Today I have FAITH in JESUS ALONE!

    Shabbat Shalom brother! 🙂

      As I said Enoch might have died the Bible says God took him.. doesn’t mean his body didn’t physically die…as I believe we have a soul and body

      Our works don’t save us only faith in Christ saves us. Our works are a result of the Holy Spirit

      Shalom
