Enoch Walked With God!

Updated on May 27, 2010

There is a real X Factor Winner!

If you have read my previous recent hubs on 7's you will remember that it was mentioned about two men who were picked out to walk with G-d! One was Noah and the other Enoch.

Enoch has been a controversial name, used and misused for many years and as a result he has been discredited as a valued contributor to G-d's word, yet he walked with G-d!

There were 10 prominent names from Adam to Noah (inclusive)and only 2 of them 'walked with G-d'. Interesting! That means only 2 in 10 people walk with G-d! To put it another way if you are in a store and there is ten people the chances are that two of them are 'walking with G-d and eight of them are not.

What does 'walking with G-d mean?

It means being in such a wonderful spiritual realm that you are able to talk to and respond to the living G-d who then answers you and communicates with you just as you communicate with your friends or family members. Talking is the same as with any one else and hearing the response is the same as hearing from anyone else.

Walking with G-d is about being accepted by G-d as a worthy person to be part of His heavenly world. That is an honour and a privilege. But before that can happen, there are a few steps to be taken.

For example, no one can go to the Father (G-d) except through the son Jesus Christ! Yeshua says,

"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him (or her)." John 7: 37

Living water refers to the Holy Spirit.

Jesus also said, " I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

And

" I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"

And

" I am the way and the truth and the life, No one comes to the Father except through me. "

The more we understand Yeshua and the words he writes the more we understand that He was as a man under G-d's directorship. He prayed to G-d and He talked to G-d and he walked with G-d. He is the one with the true X factor! As the Son of the Father, he looked to the Father and as our savior we can look to the Father through Him!

Now Enoch was a man of G-d and a simile prior to Christ coming to us from heaven in the flesh as a man! Enoch was mentioned twice in the scriptures. Once in Genesis and the other in Jude (the book just before the book of Revelation). This is very significant because G-d placed Enoch's name in the beginning of the Bible in the Old Testament and at the End of The New Testament. Why? That is a good question.

In the book of Jude it is a prelude in a sense in preparation to reading the Book of Revelation, it speaks of the lawless one to come but more interestingly in verse 14 it refers to Enoch,

It reads, "Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men: "See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way, and of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These men are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage."

This is a powerful message and it also tells us that although the only few words written about Enoch was that he walked with G-d -he is an utter mystery. This passage also tells us that somewhere he has written about the last days and the great army to come!

Although Enoch is a valued contributor to G-d's plan and has the wow factor, he is not the winner - there is only one that has the X factor and that is Jesus!
