How would you like to spend the night with God? I wonder if I could get an early invitation before I die?
Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God after the birth of Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. So all the days of Enoch were 365 years. And Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God; and he was not, for God took him [home with Him]. Genesis 5:22-24 (Amplified Version)
Enoch walked with God, and so God took him home with him and he has never come back. How cool is that? How many people get to spend the night with God and don’t have to die? I think only 2 so far – Enoch and Elijah. I want an invitation.
I am surprised the value God places on people walking with Him. I often overlook this value and place what I do for God higher. Evidently what I do for Him is not as important as being with Him. He is definitely different than me!
There were a lot of great doers in the Bible but none of them got an invitation to God’s place early except for Elijah. Is there anything the Bible says Enoch did for Him? The only thing I can find he did is father children and give a prophecy (Jude 1:14).
Did you notice he walked with God for 300 years!
So walking with God is what brings Life? It must be because Enoch never died!
So maybe all my doing and getting is not the answer because I am still in North Georgia and not on the beach of the Healing River in Heaven.
I think I am going to try the walking thing a little more. I need to go find my bathing suit just in case. How ‘bout ya’ll?
