Thinking About...Enoch

Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. Gen 5:24

            At age 65, Enoch became a father. After his son Methuselah’s birth, we walked faithfully with God for three hundred years. Hadn’t he walked with God before? Did the miracle of seeing himself reproduced in baby Methuselah drive him to faith?

            For three hundred years Enoch walked with God, and then God took him away. What was it about Enoch more than any other person that prompted God to bring him to heaven early without tasting death?

            That he “was no more” suggests he disappeared without warning, not like Elijah who was taken up in a whirlwind.

            What about Mrs. Enoch? Did she, too, walk with God?
Did she know what happened to her husband? Imagine she had supper waiting and he never came home. People at that time lived over nine hundred years. When Enoch was no more at age 365, his wife faced centuries alone.
