Enoch holds a rare distinction in the Bible: He did not die. Instead, God "took him away."Scripture does not reveal much about this remarkable man. We find his story in Genesis 5, in a long list of the descendants of Adam.
Only a short sentence, "Enoch walked faithfully with God," in Genesis 5:22 and repeated in Genesis 5:24 reveals why he was so special to his Creator. In this wicked period before the Flood, most men did not walk faithfully with God. They walked their own path, the crooked way of sin.
Enoch did not keep silent about the sin around him. Jude says Enoch prophesied about those evil people:
"See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant
Words ungodly sinners have spoken against him." (Jude 1:14-15, NIV)
Enoch walked in faith the 365 years of his life, and that made all the Difference. No matter what happened, he trusted God. He obeyed God.
