FAITH THAT WALKS: ENOCH
HEBREWS 11: 5, 6; II John 6
JESUS CHRIST has appealed to each of us to take up our cross and
follow Him. He wants us to enter upon the path of service and
walk by faith not sight. In every era that have been those he
has trusted to do so. Enoch is the second example summoned in
the roll call of faith.
I.HIS WILL "By faith..."
At the age of 65 Enoch began his walk of faith. He continued it
for 300 uncompromising hears (Genesis 5: 21 - 24).
Bible revelation is progressive. Building of the faith as
demonstrated by Able in worship the logical progression is the
right walk. Adam and Eve walked with God, but their sin
disrupted their walk. Enoch now becomes an example of our
spiritual walk with Him. His walk, as ours, must be by faith.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God (vs. 6a). Good
work's can't (Romans 3:20, "by the works of the Law no flesh
will be justified in His sight.") Heredity, ritual, ceremony,
charity nor any other good work apart from faith pleases God.
The first form of elemental faith is simply belief that "He
God has given us clues of His existence, but still he can't be
proven by scientific method. This is imply true because history
can't be rerun.
Likewise, it should be kept in mind that one of the laws of
logic is that you can't prove a negative. To prove a negative
you have to know everything and be greater than the
negativeasserted. Thus, to prove there is no God, you would
have to be greater than and know more than God. Then you would
be God; and therefore, there would be a god = you.
