Enoch must have been a remarkable man. He was one of only two chosen to escape death. The New Testament names him as a man of faith and says that his life pleased God: “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 1 1:5).
This man of faith was taken to heaven before the flood came and is a type (picture) of the Church and its coming rapture before the Tribulation. Many expect Enoch to return to the earth as one of the two “witnesses” spoken of in Revelation 11:3-12. These two will announce the coming of Christ in power and great glory to set up His kingdom. Their ministry will come during earth’s most difficult time. The Antichrist will be furious and attempt to destroy these Tribulation prophets but God will protect them until their mission is fulfilled.
Should Enoch be one of these “olive trees,” he will be able to declare the same message that he heralded before the flood: “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him” (Jude 14,15).
How interesting that God let Enoch in on scenes of the end time!
It pays to walk with God.
And only those who walk with Him below will walk with Him above.
