THE WALK WITH GOD

Let us read together from the 5th chapter of Genesis,
beginning with verse 21. "And Enoch lived sixty and
five years and begat Methuselah. And Enoch walked with
God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years and
begat sons and daughters. And all the days of Enoch
were three hundred and sixty and five years. And Enoch
walked with God: and he was not; for God took him."
Never do I read that amazing statement but that my
heart greatly burns within me, because, more than
anything else, I want to be a man who walks with God.
Isn't that the desire of YOUR soul? To walk with God?
Enoch walked with God; and he was not; for God took
him. It is a wonderful thought that we have here,
that Enoch, in this life, WALKED WITH GOD. Another
wonderful fact is that Enoch never died, for God took
him out of this world, raptured him to Heaven.
Friends, think how marvelous it will be down here at
the end of the age if our bodies do not die! If, like
Enoch, we never see Death! Oh, that we could go to
meet the Lord without ever seeing Death! What a
wonderful thing. Our hearts are longing for that. No
man wants worms to eat his body.
You say, "Preacher, that, is inelegant language."
Well, I am borrowing it from the Bible. The Bible
tells the truth. It faces the facts. And Job speaks of
the worms eating his body. He said, "I know that my
redeemer liveth and when the worms have destroyed this
body, yet in my flesh shall I see God, whom mine eyes
shall behold and not another."
So we learn of Enoch departing from this present life.
We have also in this passage what his eternal destiny
was. GOD TOOK HIM. I don't think there are any more
precious words in all of God's Word than these three
words, "God took him." Friend, who is going to take
you when you come to die? Will it be the demons of
Hell and the Devil whom you have served ...
