WALK like ENOCH.
We read in scripture of Enoch in Genesis, Jude and Hebrews and at other times in listed genealogies.
*Many today are beginning to have Enoch like encounters and walking in the deep intimacy with God that Enoch walked in.
*My heart is to walk in an even deeper and fuller relationship with God as a friend, knowing His ways, purposes and His Kingdom.
This has led me to ponder , reflect and seek The Lord re how did Enoch walk and my thoughts and revelations are recorded here for others to judge and consider for themselves.
WALKED with GOD.
"And Enoch walked (in habitual fellowship) with God; and he was not, for God took him (home with Him).Gen 5:24
*To walk with GOD means to me
> companionship, deep intimacy, discussion, sharing thoughts and ideas, decision making and dominion as The King of kings leads.
>the destination , though important , is not what life is all about : it is about the journey and where our focus is and where we expend the given gift of our time and energy.
>habitual fellowship is not only day to day, but second to second CONSTANT INTIMATE FRIENDSHIP.
>pursuit of the ONE who longs to walk with us, even more than we with Him.
*The Lord confides and shares/ unfolds the secrets /mysteries of the Kingdom with HIS FRIENDS.
"But I have called you MY friends, because I have made known to you everything that I
have heard from My Father". Jn15:15
*Our hidden life, not just our public portrayal, to be one of constant communion with God. It is in this place where we look into His eyes and see and have revelation of His beauty and His nature and heart.
*Our walk is like and as one with Him, Our Lord > one of humility, meekness, faithful, loving justice , mercy and truth.
*This walk, communion and life is where we rejoice even when there are dark clouds around. It is the place of PEACE and REST.
ENOCH is listed among the "Heroes of the Faith " in Hebrews.
"Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him.........he had pleased and been satisfactory to God". Hebs 11:5
*Enoch walked by faith, he pleased and found favor with God, he was a friend of God. Jesus tells us in John15:14, we are His friends if we do the things He commands us to do.
*Enoch walked so close with God and dwelt in the secret place with Him constantly , he saw into heaven and the things that were on Gods heart and what He was doing ,the ways of Heaven and he was obedient to to Him.
*The heroes of the faith had "encountered" Him ;
>they did not just know about truth, they had encountered "Truth".
>they cared not for doctrine but they pursued Him, the Way, the Truth and the Life.
*They had learnt how to stay within the dark cloud of His Presence yet walk upon the earth.
We too can learn this way, it is available for all who so humbly desire.
LIFE and MINISTRY of ENOCH
as recorded in the book of Jasper (book of the Upright), a sacred and apochrypal text.
> a book mentioned both in Josh 10:13 and 2 Sam 1:18.
*I gleaned more about Enoch from this sacred writing:
*Enoch's soul was "wrapped up" in the instruction of the Lord in knowledge and understanding.and he wisely retired from men and secreted himself from them for days.
*He separated himself from those he ruled over in order to "serve/minister" unto The Lord. He returned in OBEDIENCE to pass on the Lords instruction when an angel of The Lord called to him.
>He taught them WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, THE WAYS OF THE LORD and he made PEACE amongst them, and there was peace upon the earth during the life of Enoch.
*Enoch acted in JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS with all his people.
* Kings, princes and judges came to him and all that sought to " know" the ways of God.This in itself is noteworthy for us today.
> the shining ones will stand before kings, judges and men with and in the wisdom of God.
>he shared with those who came seeking.
*Enoch secreted himself for 3 days with The Lord then went and shared with the sons of men for one day and as time went on he secreted himself for 6 days and went and shared for one,then secreted for a month and ........
*Many feared to approach him as Godlike awe was upon his countenance.
*Enoch continued to share The ways of God until He was called home to heaven to reign there.
> he ascended into heaven in a whirlwind with horses and a chariot of fire.
*ENOCH did not see death as he PLEASED GOD (Heb 11:5). Is there an understanding and a hope there for us?
THERE A TIME NOW and NEAR WHERE MANY WILL WALK AS ENOCH.
MY DEEPEST DESIRE is to WALK SO INTIMATELY with HIM
TO KNOW HIS HEART and HIS WAYS
that I "PLEASE" HIM and HE CALLS ME FRIEND.
