“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. For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. for whoever would come near to God must necessarily believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him out.” (Hebrews 11:5-6)
In God’s kingdom, a little bit of faith goes a long way. In fact, you can’t do anything with God without faith. Faith is the act of believing something without the physical evidence that it exists. If you subscribe to the philosophy “I’ll believe it when I see it,” then you won’t go anywhere in the Kingdom of God.
Enoch is a guy who didn’t let anything or anyone stop him from exploring the depths of God in his day. His relationship with God is forever held up as an example to us that there is nothing impossible with God. His testimony is recorded in God’s Word. In fact, Enoch’s journey is not over yet. I believe that Enoch is one of the two witnesses of the Great Tribulation, with Elijah being the other. For three years they will do mighty things in the earth that will vex everyone living in those days. They will be able to stop it from raining among other signs and wonders. They will be the most hated men of those days.
In our own lives, we have an incredible opportunity to do the very same thing that Enoch and countless others have done in the past. We can also explore the depths of God with just a little bit of faith. Just make a decision, open your Bible and open your mouth and ask…it is that simple. God can take you places in faith never imagined. The scripture says, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of man, the things God has prepared for those who love Him.” Just a little bit of faith is all it takes…
Don’t know Him?
